The month of May brings an active political climate with both local and state level elections. HAR REALTOR® volunteers have been hard at work the past few months interviewing candidates for these elections, and below are REALTOR® recommendations for the Saturday, May 10 elections.
IMPORTANT DATES TO KNOW
EARLY VOTING: MONDAY, APRIL 28 – TUESDAY, MAY 6
ELECTION DAY: SATURDAY, MAY 10, 2014
Senate District 4 Special Election
Brandon Creighton (R): As a businessman in the real estate industry, Brandon Creighton understands the issues that are faced by our membership. He has the industry knowledge and legislative experience to be an effective advocate for our issues in the Texas Senate. Rep. Creighton has held his position in the Texas House of Representatives since being first elected in 2006.
Missouri City Local Election
Council Member Jerry Wyatt is running unopposed in his race. Mayor Allen Owen and Council Member Nguyen each have one candidate running against them, and they will need our help to turn out the REALTOR® vote in their favor. Both Mayoral and At-Large positions are citywide, so any resident who is registered may vote for both of these men.
Missouri City residents can find early voting and election day polling locations by visiting www.missouricitytx.gov.
Sugar Land Local Election
**Election has been cancelled**
Mayor Thompson, Council Member Gandhi and Council Member Zimmerman all drew no opposition in their May 10 election, therefore the City of Sugar Land has officially cancelled the election. All three men are REALTOR®-friendly incumbents that have been supported by HAR in the past, and during this election cycle we are continuing our support to foster the mutually beneficial and respectful relationship our Fort Bend REALTORS® enjoy with Sugar Land City Council.
